^ Agreed, very nice build.

My XL Scale Pro 29er is a whole 1.1kg heavier than yours :oops:

Great bike and awesome weight.

Have you considered different pedals - 310g is a bit sticking out and different rotors?

Used to run with eggbeater 11//, but find XTR better for me. And yes, have considered Rotor crank (and different rotors) - but yet satisfied with the Shimano groupe set (despite weight).

did you change the seatpost up or down? just trying to get a picture of what it would look like if i got a 29er or I should wait for the 650B. Thinking I might be a bit small for a 29er frame (I'm 172 cm).

Need the post 1-2 cm higher in order to get the perfect possition.

Hope that helps ;)

Nice build!

I'm riding a Scott RC size small too. I'm 171 and it fits me really nice. Last year I rode a size medium and it was ok, but this is better.

I'm 172cm and ride the medium Scale RC 29. I think that it fits me quite well.

Not intending to hijack this thread. Was originally posting about my medium feeling like the right fit. I'm running a shorter stem with riser bars. I debated the small for a while but with the addition of a longer stem thought that it would make the steering too slow. I have two friends also on Scale 29 who are approx. my size and both ride M frames. YMMV

You know that we also have a for sale section in here? :unbelievable: FB
